Nexus 9 DSC07282

Last night we saw Android 5.1.1 Lollipop factory images made available for the Nexus 7 WiFi (2013 and 2012) as well as Nexus 10. But strangely missing from that group was the more recently launched Nexus 9 which, as it turns out, has yet to receive even the initial 5.1 update.

While the factory image for the Nexus 9 still isn’t available quite yet, a Googler on Google+ chimed in on the holdup. Although he admits not working directly on the Nexus 9, he did say that the team found some last minute bugs and once dealt with, a rollout should commence and isn’t far out.

We know, it’s not much, but it should help give at least a little peace of mind to those of you wondering where Android 5.1.1 was for the Nexus 9. Hang in there. We’re still waiting on cellular equipped Nexus smartphones and tablets.
